Hard Candy Beetle ~ Amazing Duochrome

I can't until this school year is over! Its finally starting to sink  in that I will be graduated from high school in less than a month. Hopefully then I can get back to regular posting schedule. I haven't even been doing my nails that often...


Anyway, about a week ago Chase surprised me with this really cool nail polish. I always wanted Orly Space Cadet since I saw swatches of it online. I never found at Sally's and I didn't ever order it online. I found out Hard Candy Beetle was similar but I couldn't find it either. So it was a huge surprise that Chase picked it up for me! Judging by pictures it seems to be an exact match to Orly Space Cadet and its 5 dollars vs. 10 dollars for the Orly.









It was a little sheer...in really bright sunlight I could see a visible nail line even after three coats. But in normal lighting it isn't noticeable. I love colour like this; I can see pink, purple, green and yellow in just this one colour.  The duochrome effect is extremely noticeable in the shade.

While looking through photos on my computer I found this extremely adorable picture. I can't believe I took this picture but never posted it on facebook or on here!


This picture is of my boyfriend's kitty Riku. He stayed over at my house once because his apartment needed to be sprayed for insects. He climbed in our Christmas tree and refused to come out. We had to lure him out with cheese. =P I was afraid he was going to knock of the tree! He knocked over a dining room chair once so I don't underestimate him. No matter how much trouble he causes I can't get mad at him....he is too cute!

I  haven't been regularly posting so I haven't been checking new followers. For this post only, comment with a link to your blog so I can check it out!

Peace and Love,
Serena

  2. Beetle looks great on you.

    I like that polish a lot and once I got it, I no longer needed Orly Space Cadet. Same look, less money. I can really like that. :)

    Heh heh. Baaaaad puddy cat. lol He sure is a cute little bugger, tho. :D
